JOLT event challenges students' cyber skills
Assistant Teaching Professor of Computer Science Mayo Johnson took a group of his former and current students to the JOLT Cyber Security events Oct 6-8.
JOLT is a three-day cybersecurity challenge geared towards high school students, college students, and professional teams. The experience challenges their cybersecurity, encoding, and software knowledge to solve Jeopardy-style challenges designed by experts in the cyber industry. This gives students a unique way to connect to real-world tools and techniques that are used by cyber professional every day.
Those who participate have the opportunity to:
- Improve critical thinking processes and mindsets needed to solve complex technical puzzles
- Learn real-world tools and techniques in the cyber industry
- Improve team building
- Hands-On experience with new and foundational concepts of cybersecurity.
We are proud of these students for taking the step to apply their knowledge at UA-PTC and learn more about this industry from experts in their field!
